Excellent food and variety of drinks. Live Jazz Ensemble performs on Thursday nights from approximately 7:30 pm. Plan to arrive early to get a good seat in the outside courtyard. If it rains, there is plenty of seating with tables inside the café. This facility compares well with other waterside cafes that I have visited in Copenhagen, Denmark and Stockholm,... More

It is always fun to see the bustle at a port. You'll be amazed at the size of some of the boats. There are places to eat nearby but I didn't go there because I thought they were overpriced.

The anchorage is peaceful and the area of old warehouses turned restaurants and shops is worth an afternoon's walk. It is a nice place to relax after touring downtown Bridgetown

Plenty of boat action but not much else, although there are a few bars and fast food stalls and the main shopping area is not far away

The Careenage is the bar at the Hilton. Kitchen closes at 10:00 PM and the variety is limited. Local talent night on Thursday somewhat interesting. A bit expensive for the food

How can this be a major destination and tourist attraction? And if it looked historically cool at one time what makes it so special now? It sort of looked like a boat parking lot in a canal. We drove there and had no inspiration to get out of the car. The area was very commercial with lots of people and... More

A nice atmosphere with a great "10 for 20" menu - lovely Piers Nachos and veggy burger. There is a view out over the infinity pool and the Banks beer is great!
